birds quotes- 20 of
Always the silence, the gesture, the specks of birds
suspended on invisible threads above the Site,
His beak is focussed; he is preoccupied,
looking for something, something, something.
Poor bird, he is obsessed!
A Robin Redbreast in a cage
Puts all Heaven in a Rage.
His little throat labours with inspiration, every feather
On throat and breast and wings vibrates with the effluence Divine.
The lark sitting upon his earthy bed, just as the morn
Appears, listens silent, then springing from the waving Corn-field,
Sound the Flute!

Day and Night;
When thou seest an eagle, thou seest a portion of genius; lift up thy head!
No bird soars too high, if he soars with his own wings.
Whenas the Chill Sirocco blowes,
And Winter tells a heavy tale;
As night is withdrawn
From these sweet-springing meads and bursting boughs of May,
